Sister Gertrude Morgan was a New Orleans painter, poet and street evangelist, whose spirituality inspired a body of work almost mythic in its proportions. In 1969, Preservation Hall recorded Sister Gertrude singing fourteen gospel songs in the Prayer Room of her Ninth Ward home, The Everlasting Gospel Mission, accompanied only by her stomping foot and tambourine.
